OUR GRADING SERVICES
Land grading is an essential part of the construction process and typically serves one of two purposes: creating an even surface for the construction of buildings or engineering natural slopes to control the process of erosion. Most commonly, homeowners and business owners hire professionals to provide grading services on a section of land to prepare it for construction. By ensuring the even distribution of soil throughout the space, land grading prevents pooling water, which can destroy a building's foundation or create runoff that damages nearby homes and businesses. Essentially, grading is the most dependable way to maximize the efficiency of surface water drainage.
THE GRADING PROCESS
Land grading requires extensive practical knowledge and the use of heavy equipment, both of which we offer at Pave Master Construction. Typically, the process involves the following steps:
A loader or bulldozer is used to flatten the entire space.
If necessary, dirt is moved from higher areas and placed in lower areas for even distribution. This technique is called cut and fill grading.
Once the area is successfully leveled, the loader or bulldozer is again driven over the space to make it more compact.
It's best to have your property graded just before starting construction, as elements such as heavy rain and winds can damage an even surface.
WHY IS GRADING IMPORTANT?
With so many steps involved in the construction process, it's tempting to wonder if skipping a few may be worth the money saved. However, processes like land grading are crucial not only to the integrity of your building, but also to your neighbors' properties. Without the proper drainage facilitated by grading, you'll likely end up dealing with extensive damage that can lead to much larger expenses. It's important to count on the grading services of a professional to make sure the job is done right.
